Entrance Antiphon

Far be it from us to boast, except in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.  For the word of the Cross is the power of God to us who have been saved.

First Reading: Revelation 14:14-19

A reading from the Book of Revelation

I, John, looked,
and behold, a white cloud,
and seated on the cloud one like a son of man,
with a golden crown on his head,
and a sharp sickle in his hand.
And another angel came out of the temple,
calling with a loud voice to him who sat upon the cloud,
“Put in your sickle, and reap,
for the hour to reap has come,
for the harvest of the earth is fully ripe.”
So he who sat upon the cloud swung his sickle on the earth,
and the earth was reaped.

And another angel came out of the temple in heaven,
and he too had a sharp sickle.
Then another angel came out from the altar,
the angel who has power over fire,
and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle,
“Put in your sickle,
and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth,
for its grapes are ripe.”
So the angel swung his sickle on the earth
and gathered the vintage of the earth,
and threw it into the great wine press of the wrath of God

The word of the Lord.

Responsorial psalm: Ps 96: 10. 11-12.13 (R. 13b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm beginning and ending with the response:

R./ The Lord comes to judge the earth.

Say to the nations, “The Lord is king.”
The world he made firm in its place;
he will judge the peoples in fairness.

Let the heavens rejoice and earth be glad;
let the sea and all within it thunder praise.
Let the land and all it bears rejoice.

Then will all the trees of the wood shout for joy.
At the presence of the Lord, for he comes,
he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with justice;
he will govern the peoples with his truth.

R./ The Lord comes to judge the earth.

Gospel: Luke 21:5-11

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

At that time:
As some spoke of the temple,
how it was adorned with noble stones and offerings,
Jesus said,
“As for these things which you see,
the days will come when there shall not be left here
one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.”
And they asked him,
“Teacher, when will this be,
and what will be the sign when this is about to take place?”

And he said,
“Take heed that you are not led astray;
for many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am he!’
and, ‘The time is at hand!’

Do not go after them.
And when you hear of wars and tumults,
do not be terrified;
for this must first take place,
but the end will not be at once.”

Then he said to them,
“Nation will rise against nation,
and kingdom against kingdom;
there will be great earthquakes,
and in various places famines and pestilences;
and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.

The Gospel of the Lord.

Communion Antiphon
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
